Dickerson to replace Charlie Rose on CBS

CBS Aims to Boost Video-Streaming News Hub CBSN in 2018

CBS has been mired in third place in the broadcast morning show wars for decades.

"Face the Nation" anchor John Dickerson is taking over for Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning", the network announced Tuesday.

Dickerson, now host of the long-running Sunday public affairs show "Face the Nation", will "transition off" that program in the coming weeks, then a successor will be named, according to CBS.

USA television channel CBS announced today that its shamed millionaire news anchor, sacked for alleged sexual harassment, had been replaced by another man after its higher-rated rival appointed a woman. On Jan. 2, NBC announced live on the air that Today veteran Hoda Kotb would officially join Savannah Guthrie at the show's anchor desk.

Dickerson, 49, will join co-anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, who have been sharing the table with fill-ins since Rose was sacked November 21 following allegations of sexual harassment.

CBS News Political Director and "Face The Nation" anchor John Dickerson is reportedly set to replace Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning."

Dickerson, who also serves as CBS News' chief Washington correspondent, joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor. King and O'Donnell also released statements revealing their excitement to welcome Dickerson to the team. But with "CBS This Morning", the network is in a better competitive position against "Today" and "GMA" than ever before.

Dickerson has enjoyed a fairly quick rise among the CBS News ranks in recent years. Dickerson will be replaced on Face the Nation. Last year Scott Pelley stepped down from the "CBS Evening News;" after an interim period led by Anthony Mason, Jeff Glor took over the newscast last month. Last week its "Today" show named Hoda Kotb as co-host, formally replacing Matt Lauer, who was sacked for what NBC called "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace".
